Work in Progress

I started this piece yesterday. It is another scene from karunda Markets. I am not sure where it is going, but it will definately be an experimental journey in technique.

This is the finished piece. I am still trying to come up with a title for the picture. What do you think about "What are you looking at?".

Aboriginal Children

Hi, I haven't quite finished this piece but what do you think? I was lucky enough to get the reference from Lyndal Alston, a friend and great photographer. Who was working in the outback.

If you can think of a good name for this piece I would apreciate the help in naming it.

I recently exhibited at Belgrave Fire Brigade show and was lucky enough to sell two pieces there, "The Chocolate Shop" and "What about me?" Thanks to who ever bought these pieces, especially during recession times. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did painting them. The good thing about this is it gives me a little bit more money to spend on additional framing. This is the really hard part about doing pastel paintings, as they need to be framed under glass and costs a lot of money. If you try and do it cheaply then the whole look of the picture is spoilt.
Now, I have to think about the next show, what to exhibit and maybe get something new framed for it.
